Due to the overwhelming response that the Bissell Pet Foundation has received from rescues and shelters wanting to help in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, they will be hosting a one-day Empty The Shelters event on Saturday, September 23! On this day, all adoption fees for on-site animals will be WAIVED/sponsored in part by the good people at Bissell!
We have already taken in 12 dogs and 4 cats from Texas and have plans in the works to take in more from areas impacted by Irma. In an effort to make room for these new arrivals, we are happily partnering with the Bissell Pet Foundation on this day! From now until September 23, BPF will be sponsoring the adoption fees for pets transported from hurricane disaster areas and transferred to shelters in their transfer network, ourselves included. Please spread the word and come adopt on September 23!
